SNK has released the first teaser trailer for Fatal Fury: City of the Wolves.
The new game, which was announced at the Evo fighting game tournament last year, will be the first new Fatal Fury game since 1999’s Garou: Mark of the Wolves (known as Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves on Dreamcast).
Now, at this year’s Evo, the first trailer has been shown – as seen at the top of this article – giving brief glimpses of the in-game engine.
The game looks similar in appearance to SNK’s The King of Fighters XV, though the characters appear to have more of a comic book effect with thicker black outlines and a sort of line-shading effect on them.
The teaser artwork for the game, shown last year, was created by Aki Senno, who’s better known by her pen name Tonko.
Tonko is an SNK illustrator who’s best known for creating the character designs and illustrations for Garou: Mark of the Wolves, so while gameplay wasn’t shown last year fans were at least reassured that the new art style would likely be authentic.
Although there hasn’t been a new Fatal Fury since 1999, many of the characters from the series including Terry Bogard, Joe Higashi and Mai Shiranui have appeared in other fighting games, most notably the King of Fighters series.
Fatal Fury protagonist Terry Bogard’s last major appearance was in 2019, when he appeared as one of the DLC fighters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
Bogard was the fourth Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC character, and players who bought him not only received Bogard but also a King of Fighters stadium and 50 music tracks from a selection of SNK titles.
